Default Members who have the highest HP in their boat?

Just curious who has the most HP in their boat? Not looking for highest HP as compared to size of boat, just wondering what boat owner has the most HP? I remember seeing a picture of a big CC with 4- Seven Marine 627's but I don't remember if this was a member or a show boat. So how many engines and what is the combined HP? Pictures would be great too.

I got nothing to brag about, just a single 330HP big block in my boat.

Outboard wise whoever claims the first HSC Estrella with quint 627’s totaling 3135hp probably wins the outboard contest.

If the 90-120ft sport fish crowd report in etc. the max HP goes up in 1000’s......

Yeah.....that's a real good question since I'm not comparing myself to anything therefor your comment is totally irrelevant.

It's a pin system that actually locks into out barge so that we can push it vs tow it on a wire. Much better ride and allows us to go out in snotty weather.

I have heard some cool stories about towing with very long lengths of "wire"! I can't even imagine! I'm very fascinated with some of the old "stories".
